Club Information

Cambridge Judo Club, developed since 1906, welcomes adults from across Cambridge and the world, students and non-students.

We are a vibrant club with a diverse membership of beginners, social judoka and talented amateurs from Cambridge University and the surrounding area. We train hard, but with an ethos of fun, respect and personal development, so we cater for everyone from complete beginners to international-standard black belts.

We are also a social club, and regularly organise social events; from a post-training pint and/or meal and formal dinners, to trips away in England and abroad. The club has recently visited Germany, Finland, Poland, Belgium and Japan.

Please email if you have any further questions.

Check out the Training and Membership pages for more information on when we train and how to become a member.

The Club is affiliated to the British Judo Association (BJA), which is the largest Governing body in the UK and a member of the International Judo Federation.


These are the regular training times for the year 2020-2021. Sign-ups are required for all training sessions, with emails and sign-up forms sent out weekly. If you are unsure which session is appropriate then drop us an email at or fill out this enquiry form.

Session times include time for cleaning of equipment including mats, and some sessions may be shortened to ~45 minutes in order to host two sets of members in one booking slot. Judo training sessions in the Studio are limited to a maximum of 15 people, possibly fewer depending on tatami arrangement. S&C sessions are limited to a maximum of 18 people, possibly fewer depending on any Sports Centre coach and Judo committee safety concerns. The Club will also be organising outdoor fitness sessions of maximum 30 people.

As a mixed University-City club, we train all year long. The minimum age is 16.


The membership page has information on how to become a member of the club and mat fees.


All sessions take place in the University Sports Centre. Unfortunately, during the University exams (late May – early June) we may not be able to use the Sports Centre and may train elsewhere, with a different timetable.
